React Engineer, Just to build a BANK
Who are we, what do we do? 🚀🌟
At 11:FS we see ourselves as the challenger team dedicated to helping banks and FS players transform themselves and the industry we love. For us this means rethinking what it takes to operate in financial services top to bottom to help our partners build and launch next generation digital propositions around the globe.
To do this we need an amazing team so we have pulled together the best in financial services and beyond. Our people have co-founded and grown challenger banks like Monzo, Starling, and Tandem, led the technology platforms at Nutmeg, Betfair and beyond and transformed banks like Lloyds, Halifax, Barclays, QNB and Natwest.
Truth be told, 11:FS isn't really one company. It is a collection of startups united by purpose. Our Consulting practice builds challenger propositions globally, like we did for Natwest with Mettle. Our Research and Benchmarking team has built the amazing 11:FS Pulse service used by the likes of Monzo, Starling, Natwest and Tesco Bank. Our 11:FS Foundry team are transforming core banking and architecture, aiming to do to core banking what AWS did to data centres. Lastly we are a media company, generating content that supports our brand and changes the conversation - not necessarily in that order.
And yet we don’t work like an agency, or a consultancy, or research house for that matter.
We are effectively building and launching new startup propositions for our clients and ourselves. We believe in treating every opportunity like a business, not a project. We believe in treating resources as if they were finite, even when they are plentiful, and our customer's reputation is as important to us as our own.
We like to think of ourselves as an FS special forces team with singular focus and an execution mindset. To live up to this, we need the best talent in the market. We hire great people and get out of their way. Everyone in our team relentlessly drives towards getting sh!t done and improving the industry we love. Come and get on the rocket ship.
What you'll be doing, 💼🤓
We are looking for a skilled React engineer to become a core part of building a next generation small business bank backed by a major player in the UK. Together we will be improving the financial lives of millions of entrepreneurs.
You will work in a small product / design / team to create user experiences that will set the bar for everyone else. Jason, an 11:FS co-founder put together and lead the product / proposition team for Monzo, and we are looking to do the same thing again, but better!
So you’ll join a team of Tandem, Nutmeg, Monzo, Starling alumni about to do something very special! Quote CTO, Ewan Silver
To make this happen, you will need to be someone we like. Joking. We want you to be how we described below, but let's face it there's no unicorn 🦄🦄🌟🌟 out there. You simply need to know what we thrive for, and what makes us tick. I think that's far more difficult that having these experience and skills:
We work just like you’d expect us to work. We strongly believe that you create and iterate, rather than analyse and plan for months, so our architecture and infrastructure will follow that approach, with small, fast, and regular updates. At a minimum you’ll have experience of cloud based, continuous deployment, and you’ll understand that with this awesome power comes a lot of responsibility.
We are looking for an experienced engineer with battle scars gained by having to troubleshoot issues at some horrible time in the morning. Expect us to ask about how you trouble shoot issues and demonstrate, with actions, that you understand that ops and quality assurance is EVERYONE’s job.
If you build it, you will run it, so do a good job!
This is a career defining opportunity for the right person, and we think you are up for the challenge!
Some of the things we deem benefits? 👑♛🤡
11:FS is just 2 years old and whilst we are a startup, we don't behave like one at most times. So think Flexible Working, competitive salary/day rate, and the autonomy to enable you to help shape the destiny of this great company. You'll be joining us to work with one of THE BEST teams in financial services. And this goes to saying that we have an outstanding team of company leaders, project leaders and subject matter of experts in every division you come into.
